Product Details


“Lo brings his characteristic watercolor washes to this bilingual English-Chinese picture book about animal-shaped kites. . . . this is a visually rich guide to animals and an introduction to a contemporary festival.”—Publishers Weekly
“A stunning introduction and window into animal names and symbolism in Chinese culture.”—Booklist

“Vibrant and striking images and a simple but engaging text make this one a strong story time choice for the youngest audiences, with opportunities for further conversations and explorations”—School Library Journal

“The layered paper-cut kites are vibrantly colored. There is a palpable depth and dimension to both the kites and the sky, rendered in digital watercolors. . . . the figurative language invites us to pause and ponder the layers of meaning. . . . A simple, atmospheric introduction to Chinese animal names.”—Kirkus Reviews

The digital watercolor art is particularly effective; each pictured kite is “built” with layers of color that mimic the three-dimensional structure of an actual kite.”—The Horn Book
